​COMPUTER SCIENCE LICENSE 1405

Alternative License Pathway
If you are interested in attaining a 405/1405 Computer Science License, there are several approaches. 

Option #1 - CS Praxis Test
 
Study for and take the Computer Science Praxis Test.  A new version of the Computer Science Praxis Exam was released in September 2018.  The new praxis exam correlates to “What would a first-year teacher of high school computer science need to know?”  It is the belief that any teacher that passes the Computer Science Praxis Exam knows the content necessary to teach and inspire tomorrow’s technology leaders. You can register for the test at https://www.ets.org/praxis/register
